  13. This apron reminds me so much of my Grandmother Hopkins. She made her aprons & always was sure to have fresh new ones on hand. She lived with us & cooked many delicious meals while wearing them. They served many purposes, such as bringing fallen pecans in from the yard when she walked outdoors.

  14. Angie your post brings back the same memories of my Grandmother too.
